Environmental Personal Injury

Chemical pollution and toxic substances that invade our communities and neighborhoods can cause serious personal injury or long term illnesses in the residents of those neighborhoods and communities. The Alabama Department of Toxic Substances and Disease Registry recognizes thousands of different chemicals capable of causing significant personal injury to men, women, and  children in communities exposed to these pollutants. Sometimes these substances attack the health and well-being of the residents through unhealthy odors and toxic gases, while other times fine particulate matter invades the lungs and respiratory system causing significant breathing problems and other medical conditions. Moreover, the toxic nature of these substances, when absorbed into the body, creates problems for multiple organs that can significantly affect health and quality of life. 

These cases are extremely complex given the multiple pollutants, the large demographic of people involved, and the volumes of data that must be analyzed and studied.

Proving environmental contamination caused an injury or an illness can be difficult and expensive. In these situations, victims need a law firm with an in-depth understanding of the medical conditions caused by these pollutants, as well as an understanding of the laws and regulations involved. Cunningham Bounds has the legal resources and the scientific expertise to determine the source of these damaging chemicals and the health consequences to the communities they affect.
